The amount of times I've eaten food that's been dropped in a public place is uncountable and I've never been ill, in fact I get ill about once every 3-5 years last time I was ill for about 5 days Jan last year
Yes I refer to the fact that it would probably never make you ill in my last paragraph
What do you do (or not do) to have such a good immune system?
I get the sniffles every so often but I consider being ill to mean can't do your normal daily activities. I guess I'm not as heigenic as some people I don't wash my hands before eating, most of the time I'm not bothered about dropping food on floor, when I was little my mother used to starve me and if I saw food outside I used to eat it, sounds gross and I haven't done it since the age of 6 but there were no snacks, no breakfast, a sandwich maybe a packet of crisps (if I was lucky) and smash with 3 fish fingers for tea. Plus my mothers friend used to let their kids shit and piss everywhere and I used to stay there, it would be on walls, floor and the stench of it was disgusting eventually she had her kids taken off of her but it took awhile.My dad has a pretty good immune system too but I get ill less then he does he gets ill every 2 years or so, but for no longer than 5 days max. So personally I think it's the mix of genetics and the amount of germs I lived with when I was little
Ah I see and wow your childhood sounds like it could have been very traumatic.
I will try to eat food from the floor as much as possible now

A little dirt never killed anyone haha :D
@Aislin9 Yup! I mean it also depends on the food and the floor. I wouldn't eat ice cream off the ground if it fell, but if I dropped something more dry like a chip then I'd totally pick it up and eat it.
Me too! Also, if I dropped an expensive food item, I'll be washing that off and eating it! I haven't died yet. :)
